Does your irritable bowel bother you at nite?

    I get a lot of gas in my stomach when I lay down. It gets so bad it wakes me up sometimes. By morning, I have very bad cramping and pain even in my back from it. The first thing I do in the morning is rush to the bathroom.

    Is this a normal part of IBS? I`ve always had it but it was never this severe before and I`ve never had this cramping at night before. I don`t know what to think.

    I feel better now. I`ve had IBS for over 15 years and it has never been so severe on me. I wake up several times in the nite with bad pain and bloating. By 6:00 am, I have to get up because I feel so much pressure in my stomach and back. Its not fun.

    I was also worried because my father died of colon cancer 5 years ago. I need to get in and have that colonoscopy done soon just to make sure.

    Thanks again,
